Scenes from the Mall

While helping a (female) friend shop at the mall last night, I witnessed something rather odd for the midwest: two early twenty-something guys (with 70s hair and tattoos and sunglasses) in the women’s department of a store trying on size 4 women’s jeans. Inexplicably. And they seemed to be having a pretty good time. And no, they weren’t obviously gay or transvestites or anything … they apparently just wanted some tight-fitting jeans.

It prompted one of the salesgirls to say, ‘You sure have to be secure in your masculinity to carry this off!’
